(Global Pulse: July 28, 2010) Here is a small summer confection for you. No, it's not as eyebrow-raising as last summer's "Naked Presidents" episode -- but still, we aim to please. The message is that Global Pulse will be back in the fall with all new episodes. And even better, our generous supporters have ordered up a bigger and better Global Pulse when we return, and we're planning that right now. As we said, we aim to please.

(Global Pulse: May 1, 2009) Pity the pig. Add the swine flu to its already questionable reputation. The flu outbreak has spread fear and confusion around the world. Global media walked the fine line between hyping and helping. Caught in the middle of the rush to pin the blame: the pig.SOURCES: CCTV, China; Russia Today, Russia; SABC, South Africa; FCI, Japan; NHK, Japan; ABC News, U.S.; CNN, U.S.; France 24, France; Galavision, Mexico; ITN, U.K.

(Global Pulse: February 5, 2009) Having to contend with a new U.S. administration and a newly unsympathetic South Korea, Kim Jong Il's North Korea is running hot and cold - offering friendship and denuclearization one day, threatening war and hurling insults the next.

(Global Pulse: September 18, 2009) Banks are at it again -- making profits and doling out bonuses. Bankers say to keep top people, you've got to pay top dollar. Not everyone's buying it; France is leading a charge to prevent the excesses of the past. But bonuses provide benefit for more than just bankers.Sources: France 24, France; TV5Monde, France; BBC, U.K.; CNN, U.S.; ABC News, U.S.; Deutsche Welle, Germany; Al Jazeera, Qatar

(Global Pulse: June 26, 2009) A propaganda war is underway. Following the extraordinary presidential election, Iran’s state-controlled media are aggressively promoting their own version of events.

(Global Pulse: August 7, 2009) If North Korea wanted star power, they found it in Bill Clinton. The official U.S. line is he went to Pyongyang to secure the release of two American journalists. The meeting between the elusive Kim Jong Il and the charismatic Clinton was analyzed and covered almost as much as the freed journalists themselves. Was it a PR coup for Kim, or a thawing of the ice between the U.S. and the D.P.R.K.?Sources: Al Jazeera, Qatar; KCTV, North Korea; KBS, South Korea; CCTV,...

(Global Pulse: December 25, 2008) Gay sex in Iran can mean a government paid sex change. Yes Ahmadinejad, you have homosexuals too. In Asia's gay capital, tolerance is okay, but equality? No way. Gays and lesbians find a rocky, and sometimes violent road in their global struggle for justice and tolerance.

Either way, the E.U. doesn't want to be left out in the cold any longer.

Clips from the film demonstrate Satrapi's moving use of humor and passion to tell the story of an Iran caught between the desire for independence and the strict Islamic state that emerged after the 1979 revolution....
